Engineered Wood Fiber | Playground Wood Mulch

Engineered wood fiber is an economical playground surfacing that is used in many playgrounds spaces because of its high impact absorbing qualities yet firm, slip resistant surface that, if properly installed, will meet accessibility guidelines and keep your kids safer as they play. Playground wood mulch is a popular option among playgrounds as it is a cost efficient safety surface. 

Rubber Playground Mulch

Rubber mulch is an exceptional playground surface that absorbs shock and reduces playground injuries. With little need for maintenance, rubber mulch dries quickly, is available in a variety of colors and works in virtually all climate conditions, but won’t decompose like wood mulch.
